National Quilting Day/St Patrick's Day

Today is a big day for me.  Two of my favorite things are celebrated today.  Quilting and Irish heritage.  I am a quilter and I do have Irish heritage.  I have never been to Ireland but I someday want to go there.
In our area there is a LOT of clover  growing this year.  Have you ever looked for a four leaf clover:

A couple of weeks ago, I was outside at work and found one.  It looks like the one above, but I didn't take a picture so I "borrowed" this one.
And for National Quilting Day, I designed this little quilt:
I call it Rolling in the Clover. I used Electric Quilt 7 and designed my "four leaf clover block."  Then I imported the image (above) into EQ7 as fabric.  (That I a cool feature that I just found!) And did alternate blocks in the new fabric. 
May the Luck 'O the Irish be with you today!

I like your Rolling in the Clover layout.
and Penny-whistles are awesome! One of my favorite songs is Homeward Bound that has a penny-whistle "singing" along with the choir.

Danny Boy was my Grandpa's favorite song. My dad sang it at his funeral.
Thanks for playing it and posting.

I love it when you play tunes. I've looked for 4 leaf clovers my whole life and have not found one yet!
